Project REACH could extend help to many homeless veterans

By Jim Vines | jim.helpingveterans@gmail.com

On March 19, the Department of Veterans Affairs launched a new contest to help the people who help the homeless. It challenges the developer community to create easy, mobile access to resources the homeless need, when they need it and where they can get it.

This contest taps the talent and compassion of the nation’s developer communities and asks them to make a free, easy-to-use web and smart phone app that provides current information about housing, health clinics and food banks.

Project REACH ( Real-time Electronic Access for Caregivers and the Homeless) was announced with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, and the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the lives of people facing economic challenges.
